Why would a council member be so disrespectful when talking about this blog myself and the people who write on it? If you do not want to come to the blog and participate in a constructive way, than you do not have to. None of us are forcing you to do so. You could use this blog as a couple of council members do by coming here and answering questions or keeping up on what the residents are saying. You oh dear council member should be careful who you talk in-front of you never know who is listening to you.
You may never know if one of the people you are calling a coward or dumb ^&* is standing listening to you. There are council members that come here comment or will call me about certain items on the blog. Others come and read because they get calls from residents referring to blog post. I have to admit I am happy every time I hear that residents are calling the council members and asking questions.
Then there is the council member that does nothing but bad mouth the blog. Maybe they just do not fully understanding that the people who write here and visit here are residents that vote for them. When a resident calls you about something on the blog it does not do any good to just sling insults and rant about how crazy we are. You do not know if they write on this blog you have no idea if they have made a comment here. This council member is not doing themselves any favors by talking this way and if you run for re-election I am sure you will have a lot to answer for.
